Transfer Station Changes Effective Monday March 23rd, 2020

Effective Monday March 23rd, 2020

In the continued effort to protect our entire community from the current viral epidemic COVID-19 and in line with State Mandates on Exposure and Spread of the Virus, the Town Manager has determined that the Westerly Transfer Station will accept only household trash in Town approved bags and single stream recycling (bottles, cans, clean paper and cardboard) from its residents until further notice.

While we realize that this may pose an inconvenience to some, we ask that all Westerly and Hopkinton residents consider that limiting their exposure and that of our employees is an essential response to this potential health threat. Transfer Station employees are being instructed to have no contact with residents to "facilitate social distancing" at the facility. Residents should not bring bulky items or other recyclables to the Transfer Station during this time and should keep these items at home until this protocol has been lifted. Residents are also reminded not to congregate at the transfer station and to exit the facility once they have disposed of their Solid Waste. Commercial trash haulers and other commercial customers are not affected at this time We appreciate your cooperation and your understanding during this difficult time.

Please Limit Trips: Reduce Exposure

If you are sick or have been potentially exposed to COVID-19, do not bring your recyclables to the Recycling Center until it has been determined that you have not contracted COVID-19.

Items Below Will Not Be Accepted at this time:
Batteries

Clothing
